In Run-Up To Divorce, Michael Moore Blames Wife For $2M Lakefront Mansion

Font Size:

It wasn’t his idea, he says. After all, he hates capitalism!

It’s hard to believe that any woman wouldn’t want to spend the rest of her life with Michael Moore, isn’t it? But alas. The Smoking Gun:

With his divorce trial looming, Michael Moore is battling his wife over the valuation of the couple’s assets, while branding her a spendthrift who “unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds” building a lakefront mansion that has prompted mocking news stories about the activist filmmaker’s wealth.

Moore and Kathleen Glynn are scheduled for trial next month in a Michigan courtroom not far from the sprawling Torch Lake residence that the Hollywood power contends became a money pit that cost five times what his wife claimed she would spend on the home…

Included among the nearly 300 items on Moore’s trial exhibit list are six stories published in 2011 about the Torch Lake compound. Each of the articles described the luxury residence, while some of the reports noted that the Occupy Wall Street supporter was living like a member of the “1%.” One story described the residence as “Moore’s $2M hypocrite house,” while another article’s headline declared that the director’s “Massive Michigan Vacation Mansion Beyond 99 Percent’s Wildest Dreams.”

Can you blame her for wanting to make the mansion as big as possible? When he sits around the house, he really sits around the house.

Then again, try to look at it from Mike’s point of view. He made a fortune maligning capitalists, and then his old lady blew it all on a big house. She made him look bad in front of everybody! Poor fella.

Presumably, he’s going to let her take everything in the divorce. All that evil money. All that so-called “property.” Right?

If not, why not?
